Children's Ministry

His Kids - Children's Ministry
What Elementary Kids Are Learning This Week

This week in Big House, elementary kids in both hours are learning about the power of faith. In Mark 5, as Jesus goes to heal a religious leader’s daughter, a woman touches His robe. She believed Jesus’ power was strong enough to heal her if all she did was touch His robe. Jesus healed her because of her faith. Sadly, the man’s daughter died before Jesus got there, but He
raised her from the dead. Through His miracles, Jesus showed His power as the Messiah.
